Steatopygous female figure, ca. 4500–4000 B.C.; Final Neolithic Cycladic Marble. This figure, now missing its head, is a masterful example of a rare type known as steatopygous, characterized by a fleshy abdomen and massive thighs and buttocks, all undoubtedly indicative of nourishment and fertility. In contrast, the figure's upper torso is flat in profile with the arms typically framing V-shaped, pendant breasts. The corpulent, markedly stylized, thighs taper to diminutive, stumplike feet.MET
